Summer STEAM Activities
Each week during the summer, we will post a new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activity for students and families on our district website. While these activities will be aimed towards elementary students, older students may enjoy them as well. Families will also be able to take photos of students’ projects and to potentially share them on district social media.

Summer Online Learning Opportunity for Students in Grades K-8:
Students in kindergarten thru 8th-grade are invited to take part in our summer in-home learning opportunity using i-Ready, an online resource that provides literacy and mathematics practice.
Our i-Ready program provides students with lessons based on their individual skill level and needs, so students can learn at a pace that is right for them. Lessons are fun, interactive, and take about 30 minutes per subject.
There are no scheduled meeting times; students will complete the lessons at their own pace. A teacher will communicate with families if there are challenges or adjustments that need to be made. The lessons are offered weekly, June 29-Aug. 14. Computer and internet access are needed to participate. Younger students may need adult help in logging on to complete the lessons.
Registration closed on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
High School Summer Credit Recovery
For high school students we’re again offering credit recovery for students who did not pass courses required to meet graduation requirements. The online program allows students remote support by a school-based mentor. There is no cost for summer credit recovery, but space is limited; priority for participation will be given first to seniors, then juniors, and then sophomores. High school counselors will contact students who are being invited to participate in this summer program.
